The key themes of the Geelong Manufacturing Council include building industrial synergiesdeveloping skillsencouraging operational excellencegrowing advanced technology and positioning, networking and lobbying.

Driven by these key themes, the Geelong Manufacturing Council hosts regular industry seminars, forums, events and programs for its members where important industry issues are discussed with stakeholders to shape the future of manufacturing in the region.

In addition, the Geelong Manufacturing Council runs a range of programs, such as the Entrepreneurs Infrastructure Program, that add value to local manufacturers, encouraging the adoption of best practice in sustainability, lean manufacturing, innovation, operational excellence and leadership.

As manufacturing-related activity accounts for 43 percent of the region’s economic output, strengthening our industry base, improving the image of manufacturing and driving future growth through innovation and advanced manufacturing are key priorities for the economic profile and vibrancy of the region.

Geelong is a thriving region, with many competitive advantages existing for those considering entering into, or expanding their place in the manufacturing industry, including the food, defence, carbon fibres, agribusiness, chemicals and refiningtimber processingmetaltextiles and engineering sectors.
